I think the City of Lincoln Maintenance Department did a great job with the most recent snow storm.
As a retired district maintenance superintendent in District One during the '70s and '80s, we had many storms similar -- and they are hard to deal with.
When it is as cold as it was, the chemical doesn't work like it should. The crews become frustrated, tired and stressed out because they are working as hard as they can, but nothing seems to work like it should. It is also hard on equipment.
I don't think those who were critical have any idea how hard it is to get the streets passable under the conditions.
